Transcript: mise-en-scene we chose this film for mise en scene because it contains mist and its dark which boosts the fear factor. It;s a great film to talk about because it makes the hairs from the back of your hair rise and it's a great movie. Furthermore the tension of the scene created makes you want to see what happens. this is the first scene we picked to demonstrate Mise-En-Scene An example of mis-en-scene in this clip is this the mist on the floor makes the house feel remote and deserted, which makes the father look alone. Also the dim lighting creates an air of mystery and tension because you have no idea what's going to happen next. Another example is the candles all over the house they tell you that this house is probably in a different time period, also there not very bright and are the only visable source of light apart from the torch. I think they were put there because it illustrates how different this alternate reality is from our own and therefore increases the hopelessness of the situation. Their clothes make them seem as if there from the 1960s, they live like the american dream. They look like the ordinary rich american family. But there like two face, half of them are good the rest are deceptive.... There is blue lighting making it seem cold. This can be used to make the scene more gloomy and creepy . The backround music is there to add tension to the scene. In the section where the women blinks you suddenly here a drum beat out of no-where this takes the audience by surprise, this removes the tension which is sadly the cost of creating a shock factor. Camera Angles and the Rule of Thirds! watch closely............. Did you see the example of the rule of thirds? It looks as if its focusing on the boy but really its tracing the man, the camera is following his every move. Going further when the man is shaking the camera also shakes too which makes you feel as if your're in the room with him. In other words the director is trying to make you feel as if your in the fathers shoes. why do we use close shots and long shots? This shows very little background, and concentrates on either a face, or a specific detail of mise en scène. Everything else is just a blur in the background. This shot magnifies the object (think of how big it looks on a cinema screen) and shows the importance of things, be it words written on paper, or the expression on someone's face. The close-up takes us into the mind of a character. In reality, we only let people that we really trust get THAT close to our face - mothers, children and lovers, usually - so a close up of a face is a very intimate shot. A film-maker may use this to make us feel extra comfortable or extremely uncomfortable about a character, and usually uses a zoom lens in order to get the required framing. Close Up The close-up takes us into the mind of a character. In reality, we only let people that we really trust get THAT close to our face - mothers, children and lovers, usually - so a close up of a face is a very intimate shot. A film-maker may use this to make us feel extra comfortable or extremely uncomfortable about a character, and usually uses a zoom lens in order to get the required framing. Extreme-Close Up As its name suggests, an extreme version of the close up, generally magnifying beyond what the human eye would experience in reality. An extreme close-up of a face, for instance, would show only the mouth or eyes, with no background detail whatsoever. This is a very artificial shot, and can be used for dramatic effect. The tight focus required means that extra care must be taken when setting up and lighting the shot - the slightest camera shake or error in taking the shot can ruin everything is very noticeable. Here you will see how camera angles make people seem inferior! As you can see the camera angle has changed to a low level in order to make the people look inferior and the others stronger! Sound ADR What does it Mean? Dubbing is the post-production process of recording and replacing voices on a motion picture or television soundtrack subsequent to the original shooting. The term most commonly refers to the substitution of the voices of the actors shown on the screen by those of different performers, who may be speaking a different language. The procedure was sometimes practiced in musicals when the actor had an unsatisfactory singing voice, and remains in use to enable the screening of audio-visual material to a mass audience in countries where viewers do not speak the same language as the original performers. "Dubbing" also describes the process of an actor re-recording lines spoken during filming in order to improve audio quality or reflect dialog changes. This process is called Automated Dialogue Replacement, Additional Dialogue Recording or ADR for short. Music is also dubbed onto a film after editing is completed. In shorter words: when the actor/actress' voice is replaced by someone in a recoring studio, e.g the red demon's voice.
Transcript: Why the Nickelodeon? Shooting Stars! Wednesday March 15, 2017 Vol XCIII, No. 311 In order for film to come about there were a couple things that needed to happen. First, scientists had to discover that the human eye will perceive motion if there are a sequence of sixteen or more pictures per second. Second, cinemas would need the capacity to project an image on a surface. Third, cameras needed to be able to actually capture at least sixteen pictures per second on a clear surface, which meant a very short exposure time. Fourth, it was required that the images be printed on something flexible so that it could pass through the camera at a fast enough pace. And last, experimenters needed to find a suitable intermittent mechanism for their cameras and projectors; a strip of film sliding continuously past the gate would create a blur unless the light source was quite dim. The film had to be repeatedly stopped for a split-second exposure and then covered with a shutter as the next frame moved into place. The Move to Hollywood The End of a War, But NOT the End of Film $.05 $1.25 More Like Why Not... Wednesday March 15, 2017 The Kodak: More Than Just a Camera Quiet Confusion in the Film Industry Phenakistoscope, More like Finna' Think It's Dope! A Noun Meaning Vivid Color, AND the Name of a Company! Shooting as in Being Shot...by a Camera $1.25 The first American film companies were located in New Jersey and New York, and others emerged in Eastern and Midwestern cities. Because filmmakers filmed outside or in sun-lit glass studios, bad weather resulted in the inability to produce so the companies moved to nicer weather locations such as Florida or states further west. In the early 1910s, the Los Angeles area emerged as the major production center for the United States because of its clear weather and variety of settings. The small suburb of Hollywood was one of several where studios were established, and its name eventually came to stand for the entire American filmmaking industry. Horton Hears a Whooole Lot of Sound in Films! The introduction of sound made filming in real locations almost impossible because as soon as the director would shout “Action!”, someone nearby was bound to start digging a road or hammering metal. This forced producers to return to filming in “black box” studios, which are now called “sound stages”. Things that weren’t complications before like the whirring of cameras now were, cameras had to be concealed in boxes and those boxes had to be covered by blankets at all times. Boom operators had to hold a very large pole with a mic on the end and move it back and forth depending on who was talking and make sure to keep it out of the shot. Music at the time had to be recorded simultaneously so an orchestra was often present, placed in the perfect location to not be too loud or too quiet. Three cameras were needed for each shot instead of one so that the sound would match up with the change from wide shots to close ups of the actors. Actors needed to perform each shot in one take to ensure the sound matched seamlessly. Producers could no longer talk to the actors during a take like they did in silent films and sound actors had to talk with unnatural precision. So in a short period of time the difficulty of shooting a film went up almost too much. Luckily everyone persisted through! $1.25 Technicolor was a firm whose two-strip system had been used occasionally in Hollywood films during the 1920s and into the early sound era; however, it was expensive and it rendered colors mainly as pinkish orange and greenish blue. In the early 1930s Technicolor introduced a new system involving a camera that used prisms to split the light coming through the lens onto three strips of black-and-white film, one each for the primary colors. This technique was introduced publicly in 1932 Disney short cartoon, Flowers and Trees. The major companies all began using color, but the Technicolor company monopolized the process, supplying all cameras, providing supervisors for each production, and processing and printing the film. Today we regard color as a realistic element in films, but in the 1930s and 1940s, it was often associated with fantasy and spectacle. It could be used for exotic adventures like The Garden of Allah (1936), swashbucklers like The Adventures of Robin Hood (1939), musicals like Meet Me in St. Louis (1944). Technicolor Just kidding I Don't Mind Musicals, La La Land was Really Good! Wednesday March 15, 2017 Vol XCIII, No. 311 So Why Early Film History? Nickelodeons spread for several reasons. When film producers put aside reality for their productions and focused more on story, film became less a novelty and more a regular entertainment. People were gaining more free time to do what they wanted because of the shortening of their workweeks. Films were being rented out instead of just sold, so exhibitors could have different programs during the week instead of just one film, and patrons would return

Transcript: Man with a Movie Camera (1929) movie- Music affects everything Yuval Kohn Topic of Presentation TOPIC 1 This movie was a silent film that showed what Russia in 1929 looked like. It had clips of different people with varying professions living their daily lives. The film also did not have a storyline, which made it difficult to follow at first. However, what I found fascinating is how big of a role the music played in this movie. So much so that it changed the way I saw the film. Because of this, I decided to focus on how music can change a clip's perspective. Clip 1 & 2 https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx4w9wQVb9AshIg2DPqqkaoXjXmhkvHAHV https://youtube.com/clip/UgkxjAiuY_5Gzmp3-MfBeTVjxzLYO_A1LvE4 TOPIC 2 How did the music affect the viewing of these clips? Analysis The merging of the introductory music that showed the orchestra to the beginning of the movie was interesting. It started off up beat, which makes me, as a viewer, excited to see what is to come. The somber music that is played in the second portion of the first clip, and in the second clip as well, help show the daily life of the Russian people. The music is not as exciting as in the very beginning, which shows that life and work is just part of the normal life. Clip 3 https://youtube.com/clip/UgkxgY4qv3hf6Jpbfu4GOAGFUGSrxGeOMSOt TOPIC 3 How did the music in This clip affect the viewing? Analysis There are three shifts in music that are presented in this clip. Like the previous two that we watched, there was an upbeat track that faded into calmer music. This time, however, we heard a slower, more dramatic or tense beat. The faster portion can lead viewers to believe that life is fast. People are constantly moving. The middle portion, like previously said, shows a calmer life. People are going to their jobs and having the same routine. Life is simple. However, the last few seconds show something else. Typically, when seeing a couple getting married, we think it to be a positive event. We expect happy music, like in the beginning of the clip. But the tense music can lead us to think that something may be wrong. An experience that will usually have butterflies flying from excitment, instead leaves a pit in our stomach. Clip 4 https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkxd1O2SgWHufwa6uTfLyudsxxaoE97h1zM TOPIC 4 How did the Music affect this Clip? The correlation between the music and visuals at the beginning were, in my opinion, odd. Though what was being shown was chaotic, the music was rather calm. The audio and film content were complete opposites which confused me. I felt like I should feel stressed when watching it, but the music made me feel calm. However, the music made sense with the rest of clip. The intensity of the music matched with the worry in the person's eye. The music also complimented the emotions of the person when their eye darted from one place to another, and everything was spinning. Analysis Conclusion Topic 5 Music and sound affects the way we see and understand film. It guides our emotions to a certain direction. Whether it's calm and comforting, stressful and intense, or confusing. The film was able to use music to pull on our emotions and change our perception on what we are watching, even if it felt out of place. My question to you is, do you agree with my perception? Or did the music make you feel something else?
Transcript: By utilising Cor-ten steel modules, pre-fabricating the houses off-site, select materials and our innovative design and construction processes, Cohabitat is able to produce high quality affordable housing that is both environmentally-friendly and functional. Why should I build a house using Cor-ten Modular? For a start, it is considerably less expensive than normal construction methods, it is markedly faster and it provides significant design flexibility. Add to this the fact that houses built using Cor-ten Modules are extremely sturdy, durable and resistant to almost all natural disasters. The traditional design, permit and construction process, compounded by skyrocketing construction costs, has necessitated a re-birth of the design/build approach to creating architecture. Like the work produced by the master builders of centuries past, our residential projects are a direct result of the architect's re-insertion into the building design process and the method by which the project is constructed. A by-product of the architect's total immersion into alternative construction methodologies is the employment of re-interpreted building components. The end result is, simply, very high quality housing that is both affordable and energy effcient to the highest standards. Welcome to Cohabitat Double click anywhere & add an idea
